Looking to identify Caleb Abernathy's parents. He was born abt 1826 in Missouri, probably in Perry County.
Caleb and wife Letitia are found in 1850 on the Perry County census in the Brazeau Township, where his age is given as 23. They evidently married abt 1848. There is evidence that her maiden name was Albright, which seems confirmed by the presence in their household of a 22 yr old Elizabeth Albright on the 1860 census enumeration, and a 40 yr old Emily Albright in their household in 1880.
By 1860 they had settled on a farm in the Cinque Hommes area of Perry County, where they were still living in 1870, although the Post Office now shows as Perryville. They were both still living there for the 1880 census enumeration, and I have no idea when either died nor where they were probably buried.
Known children include (but may not be limited to) Benjamin, Thomas, Martha (who may have died young), Emily or Emma, Arthur and Susan. There is a significant gap between Benjamin and Thomas, and another larger one between Martha and the next sibling.
If anyone recognizes any members of this family as being your ancestors, I would be interested in corresponding with you.
